Please let's have some serious critique here. I need it. The white reflective spots are from the overhead lights. There is some glare from my lighting when I took the picture of the finished painting; I'm still looking for the ideal spot to photograph in our home. This is a very limited color range= black, browns, creams, reds, yellows. I set up the still life and photographed it, darkened the shadows on the computer, then painted from the photograph. I haven't made a shadow box because I have no place to put it. So feel free to critique the photo as well as the painting.
